(March 26, 2013) – SENSES FAIL today releases their fifth studio album, Renacer, via Staple Records. Spanish for “rebirth,” the album has taken critics by surprise and has garnered nearly perfect reviews thus far. The New Jersey-based band recorded Renacer in Los Angeles, California at both The Airport Studio and Red Bull Studio with producer Shaun Lopez (Far, Deftones) at the helm.
Senses Fail will begin their US headline spring tour April 3, 2013 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and Peta2 is hosting a contest for fans to win a pair of tickets to the city of their choice here: http://bit.ly/ZhAphY. The tour is presented by PureVolume.com and includes support from Such Gold, Real Friends, and Major League.
After the US tour wraps, the band heads overseas for a series of UK and European dates (see current itinerary below).
Senses Fail formed in Ridgewood, New Jersey over 10 years ago and has sold over 1.2 million records worldwide. The band’s most recent studio album, The Fire, was released in 2010. A greatest hits album, Follow Your Bliss: The Best of Senses Fail, was released last year.
